The Conjuring trailer looks scary
The Conjuring is getting a lot of praise of late, another spooky ghost horror story that comes from the director James Wan of Saw, Dead Silence, Death Sentence and Insidious, and writers Chad and Carey Hayes who wrote The Reaping and Whiteout.
The trailer looks pretty scary and comes with the added bonus of those words "based on a true story", note that isn't "inspired by" and so it carries extra weight.
Here's the blurb for The Conjuring to get you right into the story:
Based on a true story The Conjuring tells the horrifying tale of how renowned paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren were called upon to help a family terrorised by a dark presence in a secluded farmhouse. Forced to confront a powerful demonic entity, the Warrens find themselves caught in the most terrifying case of their lives.
Well when they say true it's true for all those who believe in ghosts and all things spooky, and the Warren's did. Let me just mention a couple of things from Wikipedia to put all this in perspective:
"Lorraine Warren told a reporter…the Amityville Horror was not a hoax… …The Warrens claim to have exorcised a "werewolf demon"…events surrounding this case were later described in a 1991 book written by the Warrens: Werewolf: A True Story of Demonic Possession…
Okay, that's set the mood a little better you can take the "based on a true story" tag a little lighter now, not that you should have been taking it any other way to begin with.
The Warren's are self-professed demonologists, clairvoyants, mediums, and all those related titles, claiming that they can research and exorcise ghosts and other such strange spirits from people and houses. It seems to happen to houses a lot. They've been involved in a lot of famous cases including the famous Amityville house story.

Couple of stock moments and the crazy "true story" bit aside, this could be a good horror film.
